'It's been two years, nobody has audacity to look eye-to-eye to mothers and daughters under BJP-led UP govt,' Shah said.
Moradabad: BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday lauded the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government and said that women feel safe in the state since last two years.
"It's been two years, nobody has the audacity to look eye-to-eye to mothers and daughters, Uttar Pradesh has this kind of governance. Those who used to walk on streets openly are now going to police station and asking officials to arrest them so that their encounter is not done (Do saal hogaye kisi ki majal nahi hai ki maa-beti ke samne aankh utha kar dekh paye, aisa shasan hai (UP). Jo bade tees maar khan ban kar chalte the, aaj vo police station ja ke kehte hain ki daroga ji arrest kar lo, hamara encounter na ho jaye)," Shah said while addressing a rally here.
BJP president Amit Shah also claimed that Narendra Modi was the "only" Prime Minister who had responded to terror activities in Pakistan like the United States.
"We attacked on Pakistan without any delay after the Pulwama attack, while the Opposition leaders were insisting for negotiation," Shah said at a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad district.
The Bharatiya Janata Party chief alleged that the Opposition was insulting the soldiers who died in the Pulwama attack by asking questions on the number of casualties in the Balakot airstrike.
Pointing out that Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati were "enemies" earlier, Shah said they had come together now due to "fear" of Modi. He predicted that the SP-BSP-RLD alliance would fail because "our government is very much popular by our positive works".
Shah hit out at Yadav, alleging that all miscreants were in the former chief minister's government and crime was on the rise. But during the present BJP government, he claimed, all miscreants were either in jail or far from the state.
Shah said communal violence and land-grabbing incidents, which he said were normal during the previous dispensation, had become a thing of the past and there was peace.
His rally comes weeks before the Lok Sabha election.
Seven phase elections will be held between April 11 and May 19. Results will be declared on May 23.
